the oscillating P.I.T.A

This is actually the second mini-oscillator I've owned. I loved it so much the first time I bought another after I lost the cap to the first. However, this time I am much less impressed. The oscillations slow down and feel as if the batteries are dying if any kind of pressure is applied and this toy fails to bring me anywhere near climax.

extremely useful review
The mini-oscillator from California Exotics is an oscillating toy somewhat similar to the eroscillator though nowhere near as well made or powerful I would imagine. I sadly don't have an eroscillator so I can't speak from experience but I'm sure it's constructed much better and has a far more superior motor than this one. When I say it's similar I use that term loosely, extremely loosely. In fact it's probably a crime that I even did compare the two. But, of course the price difference is huge as well, and you do after all, get what you pay for.

The oscillating motor means that this toy doesn't actually vibrate, it moves back and forth very rapidly, kind of the same way that a finger moving very fast would. Although if your finger moves this fast you're probably super human.

There are four different heads all made from a smooth TPR silicone. The four heads actually offer seven different textures as all but one are dual sided. The last one is a ribbed oval design. Of the three that are dual sided we have:

1. which has one side with large rounded nubs and the other side with a concave design and smaller rounded spikes

2. which has one side that is flat with different sized nubs and another side that is thin with light ridges on it.

3. a somewhat rounded side with wavy ridges and two little nobby things that look to me like alien antennae

So, you can see you have quite a lot of variety to choose from. Each of the shapes obviously offers a different kind of sensation.

There are two speeds of oscillation, though both feel very similar to me. The sound kind of sounds like a chipmunk being shaken and trying to scream. It's like a warbly weird noise that sounds kind of like an electric toothbrush only not.. It's very hard to describe but I can say that it's pretty loud and it will probably have anyone who hears it wondering what the heck you're doing and if you often make a habit of torturing small animals.

The mini-oscillator is not waterproof, I wouldn't even trust it to be splash proof and it's best to just remove the heads and only wash them. The heads can be washed with soap and water and/or toy cleaner. If you need lubrication with this toy only water based should be used. Since there are four attachments it's easy to lose them. Actually with the old one I had before I lost the battery cap I had also lost two of the attachments. I now keep these in a plastic bag.
Experience
Here's where the problem lies. No matter what head you choose the oscillation stops with almost any kind of pressure on it. It's really hard to get a lot of sensation when slight pressure will cause it to stop moving. Now, I had this same toy a few years ago and I loved it. It was my absolute favorite toy and I only got rid of it because I lost the battery cap which has the power button on it. I don't remember it doing this back then so I don't know if this is a design flaw specific to this one that I got or if I am just now used to using more pressure and getting more stimulation from my toys than I was back then. It's really hard to say. The way it slows down it feels as if the batteries are dying but I have brand new AAAs in there. Which by the way..brings me to my next issue with this toy!

The battery cap twists off and then you have the spot for the batteries. There is a diagram in there that says which way they go in but it's not very clear. The diagram shows them in a straight line, but they don't go in a straight line, they go in a triangle. So, every time I insert the batteries I have to try the configuration a few times before I actually get it right. It's ridiculous and it's so not worth it when I finally get them in because the toy just frustrates more then it pleases.

I can say that now this toy is not really good for much other than some light warm up or if you're in the mood to get so ticked off that you throw something. It's so frustrating that I can't press this against me without hearing the motor whine and the oscillation slowing down. If you press it too hard it stops all together. The only way I can possibly get off with this is if I am also reading some excellent erotica and my mind is doing most of the work. This on its own though, aint gonna happen. Again, this was never the case with the first one I owned. That one never failed to get me off. So, it just depends on if you get lucky or not I guess!
